    Your Touch

    You touch and I’m left dangling on a string
    with heart expanding and I do believe no
    angling will relieve me of its load
    for now I’m captured, snared and raptured
    by sensations manufactured on a
    countdown to a fracture bursting to explode.


    Out blast the tingling impacts riding
    nerves to every synapse telling knees
    and legs they might collapse upon this
    flattened floor.
    I’m drenched in breathless breathing that
    now blinds my heart perceiving why
    my lungs and mouth are grieving since
    there’s oxygen no more


    ‘cause your aroma sends me reeling with
    hypnotic smell careening into muscle,
    flesh and bone at rates which can’t be charted
    and I would spend forever basking in your
    breath with everlasting hope you’d never
    end my gasping only just now started.


    And from this magic moment transfixed, I
    will find your image did fix in my mind
    when Time does insist I have reached my end.
    I’ll walk Eternity without the stumbling on
    legs and feet made whole from crumbling
    ‘cause thoughts of you will brace my
    tumbling down that breakless bend.


    HH

    Total View – Makes an old poet mighty proud that you liked the writing and also that second stanza which was a continuation of those invading triplets from the first stanza. They showed up unannounced and I couldn’t get rid of them. Poets! Go figure! So happy you stopped in and brought your enjoyment with ya TV. Hope this helps when most needed. HH

    MzBlkAngel - It was an unexpected touch from someone much adored. I felt my heart begin to race, legs weaken near collapse, nostrils flare for the oxygen depletion and a mouth without liquid that went sunbake dry. It was a moment of serious trembling but also one full of smile-making inspiration and what kind of scribbler would I be if I didn’t give everyone a chance to get buckled up and strapped in for a poetic rollercoaster launch of love on its way to Eternity. All aboard! LOL. Thanks for enjoying ‘the warming’ MzBlkAngel. HH
